Horizontal Pelton turbine

A pelton wheel is an impulse-type water turbine The pelton wheel extracts energy from the impulse of moving water, as opposed to water’s dead weight like the traditional overshot water wheel. They are suitable for high head and small flow hydro power projects.

Pelton turbine

Characteristics of Forward Pelton turbines: Head range from 60 m up to more than 1,000 m,Capacity up to about 35 MW,Single- double-, three-, four-, five- or six-jet designs available,Horizontal or vertical shaft arrangements,Jet deflectors for outstanding dynamic performance,2 or 4 bearing gen-set arrangements,Well suited to sites with significant fluctuations in the water flow,Developed for use in demanding applications with water containing debris,Optimized jet and runner designs for highest efficiencies


Optimized  runner designs for highest efficiencies.Runner made from high grade, extremely wear resistant, stainless steel

Synchronous Generador  

The alternators consist of the main internal-pole generator and the external-pole exciter machine. The entire design is configured for highest reliability, quality and durability. All generator of Forward are brushless synchronous genertor, the unit capacity raning from 5KW to 50MW, Insulation clase F/F, power factor cosφ 0.8 o 0.9 optional, Voltage 110V- 13,800V, easy to mainain.

Stator and rotator of alternator

The stator core is made up of low-loss laminations, pressed together by means of pressure plates to form a compact unit.

The rotor windings comply with temperature class H or F in accordance with DIN EN 60034-1 and VDE 0530-1. 

As a serious manufacture, we are able to provide overall technical support and shared with customers all technical documents.
